As if to test their power and their capacity for resistance facing Cézanne ‘s self portrait he placed works that were really vivid proofs of the new avant-gardes.

In 1915,the russian collector decided to display portraits of himself next to his favorite artist.

He appears then next to his beloved artists looking at the viewver with his penetrating eyes!

Chtchoukine was a very mystic person who made a trip to Saint Catherine’s monastery in Sinaï.His own epiphanic feelings can be seen in the choice of his paintings and artists.

Portraits of women constitute the second biggest set of paintings of the Chtchoukine collection after landcsapes.The sitters who pose facing us seem to be mentally absent .They abstract themselves and by their indifference deny both their role as women in reality and their function in painting as idealizations of feminity.
